Big Red.........


I have been seeing the male cardinal in the yard the past few weeks.  I am sure it is eating berries from the burning bushes.  I have added new bird seed on the tray and he was right there. The sparrow is willing to share. He isn't bothered by the larger bird over his shoulder.

We have had a pair in our yard for a few years but last spring I found a dead male cardinal in the alley.  I really have not seen any others since spring.  To have this one hanging around is really a treat.

Seems cardinals are a treat to sight during the winter there... sorry to hear the loss of a pair. Lovely capture and unlike big dominating the small it’s good to see both sharing together.

They are always fun to see, aren't they? Love them....

We see them very rarely at our house, but my wife saw one today.

I am, of course, jealous. Wish the cardinals would come to my garden... I could promise loads of lovely food for them.
